Camping at Jamaka

A few week­ends ago we took the road, past Cit­rus­dal, turn­ing right into the Ceder­berg area. Over the moun­tain and down the val­ley you will find a lovely camp­ing haven called Jamaka.

Here your friendly (Ger­man) host­ess Katrin and her (SA) hus­band Jan­nie have opened their farm land of gen­er­a­tions of Nieu­woudts. They cul­ti­vate their own organic pro­duce includ­ing wine.

The camp­ing areas all have ample shade and most are cov­ered by beau­ti­ful green grass. They have car­a­vans and chalets to hire – all at afford­able prices.

The “swim­ming pool” is espe­cially attrac­tive. This nat­ural pool is formed in the river by plac­ing stones and a bit of cement in the right places with four canoes beg­ging to be used. Once again, per­fect green grass and trees in the right places make this an ideal place to chill for the after­noon. Just beware – the water was really cold, but refreshing.

My son and I com­pleted one of the few hikes above the river and around the camp. What an awe­some expe­ri­ence for the lit­tle ones to go on a “real hike” with a few tech­ni­cal chal­lenges. The trails are very well marked and a plea­sure to walk. We had some wind on the Fri­day night but sur­pris­ingly less wind closer to the river’s edge. The Sat­ur­day was just perfect.

There are two roam­ing horses, quite tame. We made the mis­take of giv­ing them apples and then had a prob­lem to get them away form our food!

Sat­ur­days are also “don­key ride time” with a local com­ing in to give the kids a ride on the don­key cart. In all, a very relax­ing week­end.

Will we go again — cer­tainly!

Things to remem­ber: some floata­tion devices are always a good idea. Hik­ing boots. Sun block!
We drove in a SUV but a high sus­pen­sion sedan should eas­ily make it.
